Some of you may know about my health issues I've been dealing with regarding pulsatile tinnitus (whooshing sound of blood flow in sync with your heartbeat). I had a long journey to try getting that figured out as it's often caused by neurovascular abnormalities, after many scans and seeing the top specialist in the world in NYC Dr. Patsalides he ruled out anything neurovascular, but he suggested to get my heart looked at. I got a phone call from my cardiologist and it turns out my echocardiogram showed a slightly leaky valve with prolapse. I haven't received the actual reports yet but from our conversation it sounds like it's something called Mitral Valve Prolapse. Mitral valve prolapse - Symptoms and causes Says it is fairly common, presenting in 2% of the population and is not typically life-threatening, a little worried however as it has heavy correlation with connective tissue diseases. My dad died of primary heart cancer (sarcoma of the right atrium) at age 33, that is like a 1 in 100 million cancer. Sarcomas are connective tissue tumors, and literally every person on my dad's side of the family has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. When I reconnected with them a few years ago they were shocked to hear that I had no health issues, they can't even walk without a cane because of it and they are just in their 30's. I'll try to get tested for Ehlers-Danlos, it is looking very likely because of my family history, my prolapsing valve (these are caused by it being too stretchy), and the fact I am hypermobile. My wrists, elbows, shoulders are all double jointed. Like if I put my hand flat on a table I can turn it around over 360 degrees. I also have completely flat feet, and severe near sightedness (both are symptoms of EDS). Now I'm analyzing everything and perhaps that is even why I tore my ACL so easily. Any of you guys have experience with any of these conditions? Any other health issues you guys are dealing with?
